These spooky vegan cookies look like witch and monster fingers for a fun Halloween party. Made with almond flour and pure maple syrup, they're easy to prepare!
Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, stir together the almond flour, maple syrup, coconut oil, matcha powder, peppermint, salt, baking soda, and vinegar. Stir well until a uniform, sticky batter is created.
Use a tablespoon to scoop the dough and then roll it between your hands to form a log. Press the log onto the lined baking sheet and use your fingers to gently pinch the log in the center to form a "finger" shape. You can also use a knife to score some "wrinkle" lines into the finger, if you like. Repeat this step with the remaining dough, forming 16 finger-shaped cookies.
Press a chocolate chunk into the end of each finger, so that it looks like a dark fingernail. Bake the cookies at 350ºF until lightly golden around the edges, about 10 to 12 minutes.
If you'd like to make a "witch" finger, place a sliced almond over the melted chocolate chip after you remove the cookies from the oven. The chocolate will harden as it cools and will hold the almond in place. Let the cookies cool completely before serving.
These cookies can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 days, but for best shelf life, keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
